Meet Taaply, a new Cameroonian Startup that Wants to Digitise your Business Cards

Imagine a digital business card! It may sound sort of unreal or even unnecessary. But that is exactly what the entire business model of Taaply is all about. The newly-launched Cameroonian startup is on a mission to reduce Africa’s carbon emission levels, thereby contributing its quota towards saving the planet.

Information available on the company’s website listed its mission, vision, and values as follows:

  • Our Mission: We want to change the way people
    exchange information.
  • Our Vision: AI is where the world is moving towards.
    It’s all about making things simple.
  • Our Values: Our core values are Integrity, Care and Passion.
    We always treat our clients with the utmost Integrity, Care
    for our employees and Passion for what we do.

Business Elites Africa understands that Taaply was founded by Cameroonian entrepreneur Lekel Asonganyi. Initially, the startup was incorporated in the US state of Arizona back in 2019, but was later relocated to Cameroon this past August.

Here’s how Taaply Works

Instead of paper business cards, Taaply makes use of plastic cards which are durable and also digitised. The plastic cards store users’ business and personal information, said information which can be updated as many times as possible without the need to print new business cards. All users need to do is to download/install the latest version of the Taaply app on their Android and iOS phones and then update their details.


Once again, Taaply believes that printing less paper business cards will help to cut down on carbon emission which has proven to be very detrimental to planet earth. While commenting on this mission, Taaply’s CEO, Lekel Asonganyi, said “Africa has a high rate of carbon emissions, with few methods on reducing its carbon footprint. With everything going digital, I believe Africa will benefit tremendously from digitising business cards, thus reducing their carbon footprint and helping the environment.”

For now, Taaply is self-funded and already has over 400 paying customers. There are also expansion plans in the horizon.
